When something cool happens usually I don't get as excited as I should, usually because things rarely happen out of the blue. Instead you start working at something and poof, it happens.
That's why I wasn't as excited as I thought I would be when I wrote an interview for Color Magazine. Then I saw the contributors page, with me and Ed Templeton book ending the thing and thought how stoked 16 year old Simon would be at seeing that. I mean the dude created Toy Machine and some of my favorite skate vids. So yeah, remember kids, even if you'll never land a 360 flip, there's other ways to share the limelight with your heroes.
